Cottage life in 18th century Scotland Fi Martynoga: an environmental activist, journalist, museum researcher, and a renowned figure in Scottish nature, history, sustainability and food circles. Bemoaning the evils of the modern diet, Fi was challenged to prove her claim that people in Scotland ate better 200 years ago than they do now. For a full year she immersed herself in the 1790s lifestyle of her rural ancestors. She made her own clothes, ate from her garden and the countryside, learned lost crafts and skills, and endured dark, cold winter nights with only a small fire and a candle for warmth and light.
